BY SPENCER TURCOTTE
In the first semester, students in Mr. Busse’s Grade 12 Art class (AVI 4M1) worked to recreate an image or photograph to the best of their ability by using a combination of precise brushwork, texture, and colour scheme.
Spencer got the inspiration for this painting from a photograph he took through the bedroom window of his old house during the Fall season.
He mentioned, “I chose to paint this because I connected with it emotionally. I really miss living in that house and on the street. The picture brings back memories.”
Spencer also added that it probably wasn’t his best piece of work, but the fact that he actually had a reason for wanting to paint it is what motivated him.
